On one hand out of curiosity: the DVL is a great component and with the many wrappers I can change the layout individually. For example to emphasize entries or to mark previously selected ones with a color. Or for example I am able to set visibility to “false” after an entry was selected, so a user can click on every item exactly only one time.
In an older app I used two DVLs with the same data, one is visible and one is invisible. The user could switch between them like “list with text and small pictures” / “list with longer text and bigger pictures” and technically I changed only the visibility of the two lists.
Today I wanted to know if I can emphasize entries individually which didn’t work at least speaking of height. There are many possibilities and the function “set height” gives some interesting variations.
I am not shure if we talk about the same objectives: I am looking for a way to have a list of items and to change the size of several entries of the list individually, even if I don’t know how many items there are. The layout component is more or less a statically usable component, isn’t it?
I would like to have something like this (example app with restaurants):
When using the block “set Data_Viewer_List’s LayoutWrapper → Height = 16” I get a fatal error from thunkable. @muneer says that he has found no way to change the height inside a DVL. Your opinion is that it should be possible… right now the score is 2:1 against my idea
Have you tried it? Could you show me a working example?
sure. If you need this feature though, you can create your app using the layouts component and achieve the same result EXCEPT for being able to tap/slide the rows as an event.
Instead, you need to include the labels and relevant buttons in the row that you clone. then you can show/hide components conditionally while allowing the rest of the rows to move to make space for the row’s new height
